For today's "Inspired By...", Karly chose a beautiful photo of art prints.
This comes from a fabulous shop on Etsy - 7 Wonders Design - check it out!
I used a simple sketch from Fusion Card Challenge and played along with a clean & simple theme at The Paper Players.
Combine all three challenges and this is what I came up with:
This is a 4" x 4" card. I really like it! Petal Parade has probably become one of my favourite go-to stamp sets lately for flowers. They are just so Spring-y! (if that's a word :)) And the blossom in the inspirational photo that Karly chose above reminded me of the blossom in this stamp set! The stamp is actually only half this flower, so I stamped two of them to make it a complete flower (of course, using the handy-dandy Stamp-a-ma-jig!). The arrow image and the sentiment are popped up to give the card some dimension. I love how the ruffled ribbon adds that perfect embellishment. Also, as you can see, the card front itself is embossed with the new Arrows embossing folder from Stampin Up. Love how it coordinates with the arrow stamp!
A matching envelope finishes it off.
Thanks for stopping by!
